Solid, mature power pop
Taylor Hanson had a knack for writing catchy tunes even when he was 10, and that knack has matured. No wonder Cheap Trick's drummer of 30 years and a couple of established GenXers sound so comfortable giving their trademark punch to his songs and backing his still-sweet but plenty-strong vocals. And no wonder that not only heavy-metal programs but Little Steven Van Zandt's Underground Garage have spent months playing and re-playing at least three songs from this album on syndicated FM radio. The Sweet, the Raspberries, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Cheap Trick, the Ramones and others have managed this same bridge between bubblegum and respectably kick-butt rock, but it always seems to be a surprise. A timeless sound in a pure rock tradition - and tightly done, too. Very listenable, with staying power - the kind of thing you want to have and to keep.Was this review helpful?
